Time: Kick off at 19:00
Venue: Stadion Krestovskyi
Those led by Juan Antonio Pizzi were able to hold their match against Portugal in the semifinals and thus took the game to the points of the penalty where Claudio Bravo was the figure to attack all Portuguese penalties.
The truth is that Chile has proven to be a selection that can play from equal to equal in any scenario since they have players with which to do it.
That yes Pizzi has to correct that deficiency at the time of the definition since it has only been able to convert four goals in four games.
Meanwhile in spite of traveling with a young squad and without many regular headlines made by Joachim Low to the command of Germany is not to believe, the German table started with many doubts after beating 2-3 for Australia but with the run of the Parties began to take confidence and so after a convincing 4-1 victory over Mexico has allowed them to be in this phase and now goes for the title.
Chile may opt against making changes to the starting despite the fact they were taken all the way to penalties by Portugal in their semi-final clash.
Arturo Vidal may continue to be used in an unusual false nine position.
With victory over the Aztecs Germany has extended their undefeated streak to 14 matches in all competitions and so since losing to France in the Euro 2016 semifinals, they have won 11 wins and 3 draws, scoring a total of 42 goals throughout Period.
As for direct clashes, it must be said that Germany are undefeated in the five matches played against Chile so far, with the 1-1 of the group stage of this Confederations Cup being the only draw between these selections as the previous four favored Germany and all at FIFA World Cups.
It is true that Chile has made it clear that there is no fear of any team, the problem is that it is a team that plays with the danger always latent as it tends to go to attack at all times and now against Germany although it has already tied in the Group stage we believe that this Germany will be very different, and is that if there are selections that know how to win the end they are the Germans, it is a selection that in this tournament phase does not despair nor does it get nervous without caring that it is being attacked For all fronts, always maintain the serenity and give the stellar crash and after that everything is their control.
And that is why the option of no tie offered by bookmakers in favor of the Germans is a great value, as we protect ourselves with the return of the bet in case the game ends equaled within 90 minutes.
Germany should stick with the starting XI that thumped Mexico 4-1 in their semi-final match.
